Dogs and Poisonous Plants

As a dog owner, do you know exactly which plants, and the specific part of them, could be poisonous to your beloved pup?

Our pawsome pals over at ProFlowers have pulled together this super interesting list of 199 plants that are poisonous to dogs (and cats!), along with a simple key to show which part of the plant is the most dangerous.

Toxicity levels


  • Major Toxicity: may cause serious illness or death

  • Minor Toxicity: may cause minor illness, such as vomiting or diarrhea
  • Oxalates: the plant’s juice or sap contains oxalate crystals, which irritate a dog’s skin, mouth, tongue and throat

  • Dermatitis: juice, sap or thorns may cause rashes or irritation to your dog.
